The Connecticut Convergence Institute promotes education, collaboration and convergence research across the University of Connecticut and UConn Health, as well as in the community-at-large. The Institute has expertise in bringing together faculty, clinicians, researchers, and community members for in-depth conversations about important scientific topics. Thanks to new funding from the Aetna Foundation, we are pleased to announce a new health cafe series that builds on the success of our science cafes and promotes healthcare-related topics in the community. Future cafe topics may include diet, exercise, smoking, vaping, and the importance of physical activity.
Health cafes will be community-initiated and organized by the Urban League of Greater Hartford. Additionally, the National Medical Association (NMA) Connecticut Chapter will partner on these events.
Stay tuned for more details about our 2019 health cafe line up.
